plan needs to get through both houses of congress. and $250,000 i think it would be a heavy-lift to get $250,000 through the house of representatives especially as you said if it includes unemployment insurance, if it includes the alternative minimum tax. put it plain and simple that's not passing the house. just simply not, the votes are not there. >> would the votes thereabout after january 1st for a quote tax cut that uses $250,000 as the ceiling. >> there's a much better chance especially if you're getting hammered by your constituents at home who are seeing hundreds of dollars missing from their paychecks. >> we'll have a little fun with the fiscal follies of the week coming up. next the shocker of the day, kerry for secretary of state. it's not that surprising. but all, this is a tease, folks, and if that's not enough to keep you watching we'll have an excited steve kornacki when we come back.
